Pulp Nation! Today, Lucasfilm announced Donald Glover has been cast as Lando Calrissian! It’s coming together people! The only thing more exciting for Star Wars fans is the promised Boba Fett standalone film!
Glover joins actor Alden Ehrenreich, cast as Han Solo in July, and directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Glover’s casting is not surprising given Star Wars fans had been hoping Glover would be given the role Billy Dee Williams made famous since rumours of his interest began earlier this year.
Glover is an acclaimed actor, writer, and Grammy Award winner. Glover appears in the Oscar-nominated film, The Martian and will make an appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The Force is Strong in this One.
